A Review of Flood Warning Systems in Developed and Developing Countries

Saysoth Keoduangsine, Robert Goodwin, and Paul Gardner-Stephen
Abstract—Flood warning systems have been developed and applied worldwide in both developed and developing countries using different approaches and technologies. Nevertheless people in the flood risk areas continue to be affected by floods; these affects include extensive property damage and loss of life. In developing countries, the flooding impacts have been more harmful than in developed countries for the same severity of flood. A number of factors contribute to these losses such as the data collection process, the flood warning channels and an inappropriate technology adoptation. This paper reviews the techniques of a number of flood warning systems, discusses factors contributing to the extensive damage to property and loss of life in developing countries, and finally the paper makes recommendations, draws conclusions and suggests future work.

Index Terms—Developing countries, flood methods, flood warning system.
